years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t

romney's speech on the personal side of her husband. tonight it is michelle obama's time and her turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince people that president obama is likable. check it out. in a recent "washington post" poll, 61% of registered voters said the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. so what does michelle obama need to say tonight to get democrats revved up, convince voters that her husband should get another four years? office? we're going to talk about it, bring in our republican consultant, cnn contributor, alex, and cow c-founder of rebu the dream. good to see you guys both. in person. i love this. cnn grill. likability. you know, alex, you're always talking about i don't have to have a beer with a guy, you know, the economy's really important. but people do want to be able to feel like the person in office gets it, they trust him, they know him well. did he do -- did ann romney do a good enough job last week not to have that be an issue this week? >> i used to work with mitt romney. i always told him if she ever prim

. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's been in on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has sai

got engaged and excited by bill clinton's speech, michelle obama's speech, president obama's speech at the convention, and that may turn out to be the most significant thing that's happened in the end of this campaign. >> go ahead. >> in 2008 there were 7 percentage points, more democrats than republicans new york the electorate. -- in the electorate. that's the largest advantage for democrats in 14 years. in 2004 it was absolutely equal. in 2010 it was absolutely equal between democrats and republicans. so the obama campaign better hope that they have an electorate that looks more like 2008 than like 2004 or 2010. >> that is absolutely critical. 2004, just to be clear, was the only time in history of modern polling that republicans equaled democrats as a share of the electorate in a presidential year, but i agree. i mean, i think the obama campaign is basically rovian in its view of the electorate in that they view it is more cost efficient to find a voter who agrees with you and might not vote than it is to persuade the kind of classic swing voter and, you know, this election, i m

on cdc numbers. >> so, you know, i always watch with interest michelle obama as she gardens in the back and she gets her message out about exercising and eating right, but that's michelle obama. what about the candidates themselves? are they looking at this as serious as it is? >> right. they both say that they are looking at it. so president obama has already mandated healthier school lunches, and his office says he wants to do even more to make school lunches healthier. of course there's the let's move campaign from his wife. we reached out to the romney campaign because we couldn't find anything on their website about obesity. and the campaign did not get back to us. but we did see that in 2007, romney said yes, we ought to have healthier school lunches, but he was very clear. he said i don't want the federal government to mandate that. i want states and local school systems to do that on their own. >> and then i'm reading in the local paper this morning, and it's all over the wires as well about kids in america eating too much salt. in fact, eating as much salt as we are, grown-ups.
about the leading ladies because both michelle obama and ann romney both out in the past week showing a more, you know, human side to their husbands. just take a quick listen. >> i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what's missing right now in the economy, what -- you know, the pieces that are missing to get this jump started, so for me i think it would just be the emotional part of it. >> i can make him mad. i'm probably one of the few people who can really make him mad. >> how do you make him mad? >> any number of ways. >> okay. so interesting. are these wives helping or, you know, hurting their husbands in this buildup to the election? >> well, they're definitely helping with their public image because they're the most likable parts of each ticket really, but i feel as though they could be helping a lot more because that ann romney clip continued to her saying that the only thing she's concerned about is if romney wins, she's concerned about his mental well-

before and michelle obama. we heard some very good speeches at that convention, and barack obama's was not the best speech, but it was a good enough speech. >> and maria, talk about a little bit about how he talked that you are the change. you are the ones who changed everything. he put it back on people. was that effective that point? >> i do, suzanne, and i think that it was effective, because it had not been something that we have heard from him before and i agree with ana in that there is no way to compare the speech last night to the one he either did in 2004 or 2008. 2008 was lightning in a bottle, and they know that they could not have tried to recreate that, and what he tried to do was pragmatic and poetic poetry, and he was pragmatic, because he asked people to take ownership with him of the hope and change and in doing that, he sort of was kennediesque saying, we are in this together, and it is not that we should not ask how to do it alone, but how we can do it together. it was a change on the famous kennedy line and i also think that he was humble, and he talked about

the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president while he set out certain goals and said this is how many jobs i want to create, this is what i want to do as far as exports are concerned, the environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. that was the expectation at least by some folks. and they were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, this speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bo
michelle obama will be marking the moments on the south lawn. >> on this anniversary of the 9/11 attacks we pause now to remember that moment when the first plane hit the world trade center. >> it was so important health wise to remind women, you know, check your expiration date because it's a health risk. >> that was kris jenner of the kardashian family. c's "today" show not pausing for that moment of silence defending itself the next day saying it's not something we do. finally the president giving this statement to "the new york times." we made an editorial call resulting in the september 11 moment of silence not being seen. while we dedicated a substantial amount of airtime to anniversary events, we still touched a nerve with many of your viewers, and for that we apologize. >> i don't know. these things do not have the same resonance. december 1 1rks 1941, we don't all stop on -- >> to remember. >> pearl harbor day and remember it. and we used to, right? i don't know in history at what point that stopped but that is something that, you know, news networks have to grapple with. at what p
surprises here as well. >> some of the highlights, michelle obama is going to be speaking and jimmy carter and bill clinton will be speaking wednesday and that is always good? >> absolutely. what is interesting is that a lot of people say, boy, you don't want to share a stage with bill clinton and in fact, bill clinton is going to nominate president obama. he is the nomination speaker, and so, but he brings so much to the plate. number oner he is the most popular living ex-president right now and what does that include? swing voters and moderates and all of people upon whom the election may ride, and he is also extremely popular with the democratic base. clinton is kind of the good old days and that kind of remainind of him saying remember when i was president and things are great? well, that is the path that the president is on, and that is sort of the, he provides this backup for president obama as he nominates him. and it is clearly an emotional highlight for democrats who have always thought that president clinton was great. so he feels so many roles here reaching out to both the base
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all

. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression. going
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
elitists than barack and michelle obama. they're friends with jay-z and beyonce. did i miss something? is hanging out with jay-z and beyonce a tng regular people do now? >> that's a fair point. >> everyone's always saying i'm unrelatable because i had a horse in the oolympics. let me tell you what, i would kill that horse if i could meet beyonce. >> yeah. so "saturday night live" back in force this season. >> i got to tell you, that is a beautiful horse. i followed that very closely. i did. i loved that horse. why are you laughing at me. >> what you took away from that was the horse. >> you know, the political jokes are funny, too. horse, fabulous. >> they miss sarah palin. >> they need big characters to be able to spoof. that's been challenging. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," important information for your bank account today. why you'll be paying more in overdraft fees and atm charges. a bit of a bummer. we'll explain why. >>> a desperate search is on for survivors after the avalanche in one of the world's tallest moments. a report on the rescue effort coming up ne
in my interview with president obama i talked to him about why he hasn't built more relationships with some of those washington insiders who could have helped get his agenda through. >> sometimes michelle and i not doing the circuit and going out to dinners with folks is perceived as us being cruel. it has more to do with us being parents. when we are in town here in washington in the evenings, 6:30 we want to be at the dinner table with our kids and i want to be helping with their homework. i think sometimes that is interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. >> if you are reelected your girls will be older and will probably have their own weekend plans. >> it is already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election people will have an opportunity to maybe step back and say the differences that divide us aren't as a important as the common bonds we have as americans. some of that i'm sure will require additional effort on my part hopefully. the other
there next to the iranians and that program is moving very, very fast. >> listen to what michelle florny, a president of the president campaign national security committee says in defining the way they perceive -- the obama administration perceives this so-called red line. it's very different than the way the prime minister explained it today. >> well, i think we have laid out a red line. and that is iran cannot actually get a weapon. >> that's very different than what the prime minister says. she's willing to give it more time as opposed to reaching that 90% threshold which is the israeli position. >> i think you have to look at what the prime minister how he framed it today, wolf. he said the question is not when iran gets a weapon or even decides to make a weapon. the question is at what point can we no longer stop iran from making that weapon? and that's what that red line was about. he was drawing a line between the medium enriched uranium and the high enriched uranium and beyond that point it will be virtually impossible for us to stop that bomb because they will put that bomb toge
